Valentine’s day, is a day that is reserved for expressing affection and love towards those who are dearest to us. To a disciple of the Lord, there is no-one dearer than the Supreme Lord Swaminarayanbapa Swamibapa and His Divine Holiness Acharya Swamishree.

To fulfil the humble prayers of His disciples residing in London, UK, Acharya Swamishree inspired a special evening of love and devotion – Prem Bhakti Sandhya – on 14th February 2006. Disciples of all ages brought cards, flowers and gifts to express their adoration for their true love – Shree Ghanshyam Maharaj, Jeevanpran Abji Bapashree, Gurudev Shree Muktajeevan Swamibapa and Acharya Swamishree – who were all adorned with garments made from fresh flowers.

The evening commenced with a group of young devotees dancing down the aisle, leading Acharya Swamishree into the Temple. Awaiting children formed a guard of honour and showered Acharya Swamishree with flower petals and confetti as He made his way towards the stage. The sants adorned Him with fresh-flower garments before He presided onto the stage.

The evening’s events comprised of many displays of love, devotion and affection from sants and disciples alike, including: speeches by very young disciples; kirtans sung by sants and disciples; devotional dances; and the offering of a giant heart-shaped cake to the Lord.

A redesigned version of SwaminarayanGadi.com was also launched today.

As a finale to the event, hundreds of balloons were showered over Acharya Swamishree, as he granted everyone His divine darshan on this truly memorable occasion.
